Talking Re: HVID Show at Coolspring Poll

Sorry , you'll have to come to Nuenen for that one.
A couple off years ago we took 2 engines to Astle (25th anniversary)
The 10hp Stickney and the 25hp Beijers hot bulb just fitted in our truck.
But.....the ferry crossing was almost €1200!!!
Then add some €250 on diesel for the truck and it becomes a very expensive weekend!!!!!
If you decide to make the trip to Holland...you're more than welcome to pay us a visit!! ;-)

Back to the HVID subject....since it was originally a Dutch invention I say YES!!!
Wish we could bring our dutch Timmer prototype engine over for that show!!!!

I will have to see what shows it collides with over here, I would have come across to your open day this summer but it was the same weekend as Onslow Park which is probably the 2nd/3rd best show now.

I miss the Stickney that was great to see at Astle, I appreciate the effort and expense as i'm sure many others did. BUT If you bring the standard it will save you 700 euro as you won't be needing to take it home


Apologies for the diversion away from HVID's but I blame Jonathan

I think if we had to leave anything behind at Astle it would be our truck and we'd push the Standard home again LOL!!!
Anyway....HVID's at Coolspring would be a perfect excuse for another visit!!!!!

Thinking of CPM featured engines.... I am sure the Ohio theme will bring a bunch out of the wood work.

2015 will be 20 years since the flame ignition/Centennial engine expo. It was probably the best display of historically significant engines ever assembled anywhere. Maybe it would be good to revisit that theme. I cant think of a better location to have such a feature. It will bring back many of the occasional long distance visitors. I know several people who are already making plans to attend the 2013 Nunen show that haven't been there for a while or ever - especially with the rumors of a slide valve feature, I wonder how many will show up?

It's always Jonathan's fault.

I can bring my Brantford Hvid and be covered with a Hvid and a Canadian built engine. Still working on the 10hp Sy Marys deal. This will be my first trip to Coolsprings.

I just started saving to go to in 2015 I actually went to the flame ignition expo but I was too busy running around dancing and eating bananas to remember any engines. Thats right I used to be a monkey I was only 2! Dad keeps saying how great it was I figure that would be the perfect reason for another trip, i'm counting down the days already!

Geez guys, what did I ever do to you??

I like the 20th Anniversary flame ignition show!! That sounds great. I remember the show in 95 but only vaguely. We took the Ruger and it hasn't been home since, maybe it's time to take a new flame ignition engine down...

Ummm what about doing a Mietz & Weiss show??
or just early oil/diesel/hotbulb stuff in general??

Wayne, I think that would be GREAT IDEA !!!!!!!!! It sure was VERY IMPRESSIVE then. Some of the slide valves have changed hands since then. Big serious collectors from all over the States as well as their engines were there. Unforunately some of the well known collectors has left us as well.

Does it mean also that 120 year old engines would be the secondary feature or the engines that will be 100 years old in 2015 IE those built in 1915, either would be interesting IMO.
